Assistant Explorer Scout Leader

Fylde District Explorer Scouts

Scouting has got a lot to celebrate - not only has it been 100 years since the movement was formed, but the ever increasing UK membership has now reached well over 440,000. With such growing numbers, Scouting enables more children, young people and adults than ever to take part in an exciting range of activities, boost their personal skills, gain friends and make a positive difference to the world around them. If you're interested in helping young and enthusiastic people reach their full potential - while having a lot of fun along the way - volunteering with the Explorer Scouts may be for you. Explorer Scouts are aged between 14 and 18 years old and, unlike members of the younger Scouting sections (ie Beavers, Cubs and Scouts), are allowed to decide what activities they do within their individual units. This could include anything from powerboating to mountain climbing, socialising or performing your heart out in a gang show. This Unit loves to specialise in water-based activities including sailing, kayaking, canoeing etc and many activities through the year are linked to these. Even if you've never worn a woggle in your life and are a complete Scouting novice, you can still volunteer as a Explorer leader. No specific skills or qualifications are initially required, although an enjoyment of working with young people and a sense of fun are essential
